This film does a good job of portraying the story of the mountain men who
trapped beaver in the Rocky Mountains and played a significant role in
winning the West. Clark Gable is the star of this film. He plays a
who falls in love with a Blackfoot maiden (Maria Elena Marquez). He buys
her from a Nez Perce chief hoping to use her to get into the good graces
her grandfather, a Blackfoot leader. Ultimately, he falls in love with
The romance between Gable and Marquez is the real story of this film. It
much more believable than the relationship between James Stewart and Debra
Paget in "Broken Arrow". In the first place, the two of them can't talk
each other. Gable needs an interpreter to talk to his wife. The
relationship compares to the forced marriage between Robert Redford and a
Flathead girl in "Jeremiah Johnson". Gable's affection for his Blackfoot
wife is obvious throughout the film.
The film paints a much kinder picture of Native American life than many
Westerns. Like Dewey Martin's character in "The Big Sky" Gable returns in
the end to the Blackfeet. He has learned to value Indian life and wants
raise his son with her mother's people.
The film portrays the real life capture of fur trapper John Colter by the
Blackfeet. Captured by a young chief named Iron Shirt Gable must run for
his life. The film should have taken more time with this exciting scene.
It is far too short and not nearly as exciting as it should have been. I
enjoyed Henry Fonda's run for his life in "Drums Along the Mohawk", but it
was very poorly done here. Colter's successful escape from his Blackfeet
captors deserves a better rendering.
This film is worth watching for the beautiful high mountain scenery and
romance between Gable and Marques. The soundtrack is not particularly
original, giving us constant variation on the old standard "Shenandoah",
it is pleasant listening. Enjoy it.
